In 2007, FSU learned of possible academic misconduct in its Office of Athletic Academic Support Services, which provides academic assistance to student athletes. FSU began an investigation. Shortly thereafter, its chief audit officer issued a report finding there was “considerable testimonial evidence” that a "Learning Specialist" and a tutor within the OAAS "perpetuated academic dishonesty" to a degree which may have violated the academic honor policy of the university.
After the release was published, Brenda Monk, the specialist referred to in the report, resigned and sued the school for defamation.
